Xena Warrior Princess
Locations - Waiti Stream
Waiti Stream flows out of the base of Lake Wainamu,
following around the
side of the dramatic sandblow in a majestic arc and finally flowing
out into Waitakeri River in Bethells Valley.
From where it meets Waitakeri River, it isn't far to the estuary and
the river mouth at Bethells Beach.
Waiti Stream near Lake Wainamu
Waiti Stream is one of the most commonly used locations for both
Xena and Hercules. This one should be familar from the Hercules
episode Two Men and A Baby.
This particular view is to be found in Hercules and the Amazon Women
where the amazons are riding to attack the village.
It also appears in the horse dragging scene from
The Bitter Suite and appears twice
in Return of Callisto: first when
Joxer arrives to tell Xena and Gabrielle that Callisto has escaped from
prison, and again when Callisto kills Perdicas.
The broad sandy bed of Waiti Stream
Near the confluence of Waiti Stream and the Waitakeri River, the sandblow
is more overgrown, as can be seen in this view.
This is the location of the chariot fight from
The Chariots of War (which is also featured in the openning titles)
and the tuft of grass in the middle is the one that spills Xena and Gabrielle
out of the chariot.
It has appeared more recently as the place that Xena and Boadicca meet and
then turn on their mutual enemy in The
Waiti Stream near Waitakeri River
